Candlewood Suites - Alexandria West
Ranked #51 of 54 Hotels in Alexandria
Reviewed June 11, 2005

Stayed here 3 nights June 2005. Good driving location to DC, but motel is poorly maintained, staff barely speaks English, hallway carpets dirty, bathroom shower curtain hadn't been cleaned in what looked like years. Also, bring your own shampoo. With taxes, this room cost $90/night, which is a good price for DC, but you get much less than you pay for.

While I was planning my stay in DC I ran across a very good deal from Inns of Virginia at their Bragg Building in Alexandria.
A three night stay gets a very good rate (currently @$59/night for 3 days).
However, I found NO reviews.
Strange, since the building has 98 rooms to rent.
The hotel is about 40 years old and may have been an apartment in an earlier life.
The rooms were suite size (2 queen beds) with a kitchenette (fridge, stove, microwave, sink) and dining table in each room.
The overall cleanliness of the facility rated OK, but the rooms seemed above average.
The staff seemed competent.
The parking lot was too small for 98 rooms.
Nearby, up the street, a cornucopia of different inexpensive restaurants, fast foods, grocery stores in the Lincolnia area.
Go over the freeway (I-395 #3) to the east and the Landmark Mall (huge) awaits.
The I-395 puts you in DC in a heartbeat (assuming no traffic).
A Metro station is about 2 miles away.
This hotel is a great stay for those who need an inexpensive alternative INSIDE the beltway to the quite pricey DC area.
